Filmed in 1985 and slated for release in 1986 by Orion Pictures in the United States. Due to reasons unknown, this never materialized and the film was released in Europe instead. The film would make its American debut in late 1988 on Orion Home Video, capitalizing on the buzz surrounding star Melanie Griffith and her upcoming film Working Girl (1988), for which she received an Oscar nomination. Several years later, Griffith said that Cherry 2000 (1987) is her least favorite film but also acknowledged that the film enjoyed some cult status on cable. See more »
In the water tunnel as E. is beginning to exit the car, she says to Sam: "We're going to have to hoof it from here." The camera shot changes to a wide shot, showing E. starting to rappel down the tunnel out of the car. There is a crewman plainly visible (in HD) on the right side of the tunnel, possibly holding a boom mic. See more »

Urbanite hires crusty lady tracker to find sexy robot
This is the kind of film that gets under your skin. One of a small subgenre of Sci-Fi Westerns, its small flashes of inspired writing make it worth watching some night when there's nothing else to do. Cameron Milzer is particularly notable as a blackly comedic psycho-girlfriend, but Tim Thomerson and Melanie Griffith are no slouches themselves. Pleasant bleak visuals and an interesting score from Basil Poledouris (Robocop, Hunt For Red October, & the Conan films, as well as 60 other movies) make for a modest repeat viewability factor. Fun and stupid!
